    This is my first post here and I'm really desperate for help.

    I've been searching this forum and on google for a solution but only ended up in an endless loop of trial and error.

    So, here's my problem:

    I have no idea how to properly set up a reseller account with custom name servers (i.e. - -

    I also have 50 IP's to dedicate to several domains.

    I've found several tutorials for how to do this, all is a bit different from each other and does not cover the whole operation, so i get stuck every time trying...
    I believe i need an in-depth instruction for which fields to change in the "Edit DNS Zone" section.

    If some experienced enthusiast wold give some step by step instruction so i can get started i'll be forever thankful:)

    Hello :)

    Name servers are registered/created at the domain registrar of the domain name you are creating them for. There is a guide on this for common registrars at:

    cPanel - Register Private NameServers

    Then, simply use "Edit A DNS Zone" in WHM for the domain name you are creating the name servers for to ensure they match the IP addresses you used at the registrar. These name servers are used by default for new accounts under the reseller provided you have entered them for the reseller via "WHM Home » Resellers » Edit Reseller Nameservers and Privileges".

    Thank you.
